Rip 2020

+ Jul 01 (06h10 nest time)- Latvian Golden Eagle nest, Latvia : Eaglet Klints, Spilve and Virsis child.

Here is what Pascale wrote about little Klints viewtopic.php?p=353585#p353585

There is this Golden Eagle nest in Latvia.
Virsis, an experienced dad, Spilve, a very first time mom, and Klints, the little chick.
Spilve was doing extraordinarily well for a first time mom. She was taking care of the nest and the baby. Virsis was the provider. Everything was going pretty well, Klints growing up strong and adorable until Virsis was missing :no: :brknhrt: :brknhrt:
Spilve tried to hunt but could only bring small preys, and not every day...
« Scientists » and « experts » kept saying that it wasn’t too bad and maybe Virsis will come back. No intervention, this nest is a scientific one.
Every watcher could hear Klints crying for hunger, and his cries finally stopped this morning.
Klints is 52 days forever.
Your suffering ended little one :cry1:
Fly high little baby, I’m sure dad was there to help you.
Poor poor mom... she adored you :cry1:

And here what Lady Hawk wrote about the tragedy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DxVI_pMmw0

Virsis, a Golden Eagle male, and Spilve, a newly-mature Golden Eagle female, breed in their artificial nest, which was installed in 2010. Most recently the eagles successfully breed here in 2016. The nest is located in a bog on an island managed by the Latvian State Forests. Last year a female (Spilve) appeared regularly but she was too young to breed. For 2020, Spilve laid two eggs - on March 28th and April 1st. Egg #1 is non viable & egg #2 hatched on May 10, 2020. Klints passed away on July 1st 2020 after Dad Virsis went missing and food was scarce.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform everyone our sweet little Klints has passed away early this morning. His last movement was at 06:10 AM Latvia time. My heart is broken in two over the loss of this little eaglet. My deepest condolences to all the viewers who watched this nest and fell in love with him & our our eagle parents Spilve and Virsis. May Klints soar forever on angel wings. RIP little one. We will never forget you. 🌹💔💔😰
Klints was 52 days old.

Merci Pascale & Lady Hawk

Father Virsis has been missing since 6/21/2020
Yesterday Mom brought some food but a so weak Klints was already not able to eat it.
Klints, you will never be forgotten. Rip little guy, forever in our heart. :rh: :cryhanky:

Rip 2020

+ July 3 - Minnesota DNR Nest, Minn : Eaglet E1.

E1: March 15 - July 3. 3 months and 18 do :( :cry1: :brknhrt:

After E3 the 13th of April, today E1 finally left this side of the mirror and let E2 alone in the area.

yesterday 07-04-2020, Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program announced:

Sad News July 4, 2020

Yesterday was a sad day. We regret to inform you that E1 passed away yesterday. Unfortunately, she flew into a power line and was found dead. One of our photographers who monitors the nest reported a chick was dead and hanging from a near by power structure. He reported it to Nongame staff and we contacted Xcel Energy, who immediately responded and had a crew on site to retrieve the chick, which was identified as E1.

No one witnessed the event. Her wing caught a loop and she was found hanging. Once Xcel retrieved the remains, Nongame took possession of E1. It was determined that she was not electrocuted. It appears she hit the line and likely died on impact It happened some time between 8:30 am and 6 pm yesterday, July 3. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for eagles to perish by hitting power lines, but it is always sad to witness and report. ....

... Of course, we hope that E2 will continue to thrive and survive until adulthood. There is no way to protect birds from all of the environmental hazards, but escaping them will result in a stronger individual. E2 has, and will continue to visit the nest and we will keep the camera on until at least the end of August. ....

RIP E1

MIA 2020

MIA Jun 18 - Kenai Eagle nest, Alaska : Bald Eagle Redoubt, Aurora's mate, Denali & +Spurr's Dad.

Four days before the loss of Spurr, you, the supplier, were reported missing. I hope you were by Spurr's side when he needed your support during his downfall and were able to grab his little soul between your wings and take him with you to heaven.

Androcat posted (for Spurr):
Today, we said goodbye to our precious little Spurr :brknhrt: . Tonight, Aurora and Denali are together on the nest, as I pray for Redoubt’s safe return. I am sharing one of my favorite pictures, a beautiful moment from when our family was four, and we observed Redoubt passing pieces of food to Aurora to feed Denali and Spurr.

MIA Jun 22 - Latvian Eagle nest, Latvia. : Golden Eagle Virsis, Splive's mate and +Klint's Dad.

After Virsis was missing, Spilve a new first time mother waited too much time before leaving Klints for hunt. She brought only small preys not enought for a growing golden eagle. The consequence of a missing Dad, Klints died of starvation.

This is what Pascale wrote after the loss of Klints. ... Virsis, an experienced Dad, Spilve, a very first time Mom, and Klints, the little chick. Spilve was doing extraordinarily well for a first time Mom. She was taking care of the nest and the baby. Virsis was the provider. Everything was going pretty well, Klints growing up strong and adorable until Virsis was missing :no: :brknhrt: :brknhrt: Spilve tried to hunt but could only bring small preys, and not every day... ... Every watcher could hear Klints crying for hunger, and his cries finally stopped this morning (07-01). Klints is 52 days forever. Your suffering ended little one :cry1:
Fly high little baby, I’m sure Dad Virsis was there to help you. Poor poor Mom... she adored you :cry1:


Virsis came in a last time in the nest with a prey. He never came back.

MIA 2020

MIA July 01 - Delta2 Eagle nest, Bc : Eaglet Sunny, Ma Delta2 & Trooper's child and Shadow's older sibling. (For Sunny, that's just my personal opinion)

After an accidental fledge at 19h11 Sunny (81 do) was seen at the end of the day but never after

From https://hancockwildlife.org/delta-2-cams/
Older eaglet Sunny had an accidental fledge the evening of July 1 – he was on a branch and tried to hop back to the nest, slipped, and ended up on the ground. Experienced local observers found him in one of the fields near the nest that evening but were unable to capture him – he can fly, though wasn’t getting much height. As of July 4, he hasn’t returned to the nest and there haven’t been any sightings, though rescuers and the zoomer team have been looking. Sunny was 81 days old when it happened, so close to the time he (or she) would have fledged normally, and it does take time for eaglets to develop the strength needed to fly up to a nest – so we are all hoping he’ll return. Update – as of July 9, we have not seen Sunny.

:dunno: .
2 pics taken just before the accidental fledge. the first one by Sandy_W 2 h00 before and the second one by RoseA. Thanks to both.

MIA 2020

MIA May 07 - NEFL Eagle nest, Fla : Eaglet Jules, Gabrielle & Samson's child and Romy's older sibling. (For Jules, that's just my personal opinion)

After her fledge at 07h50 Jules (78 do) was seen only once not a long time after and then she was never seen or heard and never came around her nest.

from https://www.nefleaglecam.org/
gretchen_AEF (Admin): THURSDAY TUCK-IN: What a day!!! Jules didn't disappoint and was raring to go. We saw her land in a a tree in the LY area and she soon took off. We didn't see her after that, but she's likely loving her new-found freedom. She shall return to the nest. It may be tomorrow or a day or so later. She's a confident and strong eagle. ... "

Rip 2020

+August 07 - Baseball Park Nest - Missoula - Mont : Osplet BPNx one of the three Louis (ex Iris's mate) and Star's chicks.

After two eaglets, CSN1 & CSN2, Eaglets from Caloosa School Nest, LE103, Cape Coral, Fla, 03-16-2020, viewtopic.php?p=300810#p300810 , now this is the turn of an osplet wich impaled its wing on a lightning rod.

Reported by Heather L : viewtopic.php?p=368535#p368535
08-06/2020
one of Louis and Star's chicks ... was injured and rescued at the baseball park nest Missoula Montana
It landed on one of the stadium lights & impaled its wing - the fire dept was able to rescue it & took it to a rehab

:vid: from the rescue from NBCMontana : https://nbcmontana.com/news/local/injur ... n-missoula

MISSOULA, Mont. — It was a team effort to rescue an osprey at Missoula's Ogren Park baseball stadium Tuesday evening. Firefighters were called out to help reach the injured bird at the top of the stadium lights.
We're told the bird may have impaled its wing on a lightning rod and got caught.
Missoula Paddleheads stadium workers said the bird was one of the fledglings of this year's trio of new babies.
The bird was taken to a raptor center for rehabilitation


Reported by IrishEyes : viewtopic.php?p=368728#p368728
I saw this on the Dunrovin Osprey Nest :( \
Sad news of the fledgling from Ogren Park. 😢 RIP young one and fly free and high.

08/07/2020
Wild Skies Raptor Center
I’m writing this post in regard to enquires we’ve had about the fledgling Osprey at Ogren Park. After having our veterinarian assess the wound we decided to euthanize the poor Osprey due to the location of the wound and the amount of damage to the wing—the wound could not be surgically closed. This decision is never easy to make. It is, unfortunately, a part of wildlife rehabilitation and there are many factors that we must consider. The bird’s well-being, quality of life, and ability to survive in the wild are always our first concern. All birds are humanely euthanized according to the American Veterinary Medical Association Euthanasia guidelines.
It is also unfortunate that this is not the first time this has happened. ...

Personal thoughts. It had been trotting in my head for a little while. but sorry little one, it is too late for you and for so many others. :cry1: :cry1:
I begin to have a big problem with the term "humanely euthanised". I can understand it if there is nothing to do against the suffering, the end of life, if life is not worth living but who can decide? Some amputate and let live, no longer in freedom, it's true, but life is sacred even that of animals and some find it can be beautiful despite everything without being able to fly. Ask Bailey or Smedley and so many others ...! I also :luck: hoping it won't become so systematic in humans because i think it gets overkill for animals and i promise you that is'nt necessarily a panacea.

Rip little guys, forever in our heart. :rh: :cryhanky:

Having a special link in my heart to osprey and that nest in particular, your thoughts are appreciated Philjo. I like that you speak up.

:vid: Fate of the Two Missing Condor Chicks - September 11, 2020

Ventana Wildlife Socety’s Condor Program
We are saddened to share the news that two of the five condor chicks previously reported as being in harm’s way have perished in the Dolan Fire. Three of the five condor chicks survived, including “Iniko,”
as well as chick #1033, who was rescued from a cliff’s nest that was directly in the path of the fire’s advance. Iniko was named by the public while viewers around the world watched this chick and its parents on live-streaming camera provided by explore.org. While the loss of every California condor is tragic, we are also seeing the remarkable resiliency of the next generation of condor chicks. There are still nine missing free-flying condors since the time of the fire on August 21, 2020 but we remain hopeful.

As the condor population continues to grow and their range continues to expand, catastrophic fire events like this one are less likely to have a significant impact on their recovery. Thanks to Condor Program Recovery partners, releases of new condors raised in zoos will occur despite the loss of the Big Sur Condor Sanctuary. A cohort of nine condors will be transferred to central California next month and seven of these will be released in San Simeon, California and the other two at Pinnacles National Park.

That is so sad Philjo.....I also cry for the loss of a lot of animals we do not know in those fires.

Rip 2020

+ October 08 - Orange Falcons Nest - Australia : Falconet OFx one of the two Diamond and Xavier's 2020 osplets.

3 eggs, 2 falconets. Some saw a part of the shell of the egg stucked on it's belly. Was it the cause why it seemed to have some problems eating and was often on it's back. We don't know. I saw one of it's last movement around 18h44.

Like i wrote in the Eagle chatters Nest thread: The 3 days old tiny one "took one last breath, opened his wings and flew away silently, leaving his sibling, Mother Diamond, Father Xavier, and all of us, all alone. RIP little one, you are not alone and will never be." :cry1: :rh:

Rip 2020

+ October 12 (around 08h20) - Port Lincoln Ospreys Nest - Australia : Osplet Tap the younger of 3 osplets.

Until 2 or 3 days before everything was fine in this nest apart some gentle bonks during the meals but Tap was very well fed each days. Suddenly, all changed. The bonks were stronger, the two olders (twice Tap's size) blocked its acces to the food and then its long agony and its suffering cries have begun. That last night, its mother's heat calmed him down a little, but it was already too late for the little one. A little bit active early this morning, i saw one of Tap's last movement around 08h20. All was done.
Your ordeal is over, Tap.

Mia 2020

MIA August 20 (last time seen) during the Dolan fire. - Big Sur - Ca : Condor Kingpin #167, Redwood Queen #190's Mate and Iniko's Dad.

This California condor nest is located inside a coast redwood snag in Big Sur, California. The nest area is about 5 feet in diameter and is situated 60 feet above the ground. Due to the massive size of the tree, scientists believe it could be over 1000 years old!
During the fire two known young condors died, many adults didn't return if they were lucky to fly away before as the fire hit them all during the night....

More than 2 months later, Kingpin like many others isn't back in the area. May be it is time to wish to all of them a pretty soaring life wherever they are now. You are still with your flock, Kingpin!
Redwood Queen, Iniko's mother was back after the fire. She fed the little one.
A couple of day earlier a male condor ejected Iniko from his nest. Iniko is healing at a zoo and will be back in a while in the area like a wild condor he is. In a few years, Iniko will be able to pass on Kingpin's genes to his children :luck: .

:brknhrt: Kingpin #167 :brknhrt: The flock leader. :(

Hierarchy Of Loss

"Wings of ebony" follow their leader..."Kingpin" of the flock.
The silence of their passing...in time locked.
Riding the thermals, on new winds of change...
On the horizon, silhouetted against the setting sun.
Winging their way...they disappear from view...
So cry our tears...hold each other in "virtual embrace"

Mia 2020

MIA October 17 (last time seen) . - Sydney Olympic Park, AUS : Sea Eaglet SE25 The most tolerant and kind bro (81 days old) of SE26.

After his fledge october 14, SE25 was seen for the last time october 17. It is the first season i was able to follow this nest with very few bonking moments. It seems at a time that SE25 knew that his little bro had a handicap at one leg and at this point SE25 was doing all he can to help SE26 growing well. Until his fledge, SE25 was SE26's teacher and protector. I don't know where you can be today, SE25, too young to be alone with no aptitude to hunt or fish but for all you do before leaving for your little bro, merci mon ami ! :thumlft:
I :luck: and hope SE26 will be able one day to tell to his children how kind, his bro, SE25 was... :rh:

Handicaped of her right leg, SE26 stayed all the time many days late compare to her sibling SE25. Late to ciculate in the bowl, late to get up, late to self feed and needed many time and still some help from Mom or Dad, Late for branching but she finally succeded flying.
But how can you think something wrong may be heal alone. No help for her as many saw early that something wrong had taken place with her right leg. So November 14th she was captured on a balcony from where she was not able to exit by herself and sent to a veterinary cabinet.
November 20 it is said that both legs are bad and therefore the sentence is terrible: death. :cryhanky: :brknhrt:
That's not what makes me angry, it's that the people in charge don't even think they are guilty. They do not even seem to realize that their cruelty (of not dealing with it before) led to the loss of SE26. We respected the law...
Is it a good law if it leads to the death of a living being ? :angry: I have my answer.
They also banned me from their FB. It's not important as i know who i am and what I'm worth humanly speaking. Not all truth is good to say...
SE26 i know you have already forgave them but i can't yet.

I am beyond sadness .
these two young eaglets have been a joy to watch. From the beginning sea eagle cam were aware of se26 issues - I remember they said she had not the normal mobility at 2 or 3 days old ! I didn't notice this at this time.
Now they say they didn't know it was that bad. Sorry they are lying and it's not the first time !
Anyway it is too late for this beautiful soul. Now she's delivered from pain. I picture her enjoying her life "elsewhere" with her brother/sister and all these beautiful little ones.
I will never forget you, se25 and se26.
You joined the too long list of all the little loved ones we missed so much.

last message concerning this announced tragedy.
In fact human law, human non-intervention are the causes of this disaster.
SE26 was condemned from birth by human law. Is this normal? Those who knew, they lied to us by giving us hope. SE26 was killed because at the end we could no longer act for her, give her a life worthy of a wild bird and to stop her suffering.
Yet it seems to me that this suffering that we saw day after day did not bother anyone since we left her in this state which inevitably never got better since in fact her pain worsened until it was no longer possible to save her.
Conclusion, humanity and human laws kill wildlife. You have to ask the right questions. Don't all lives have the same values?
We are told that human intervention is only possible if the risk or problem is man-made.
Bad human law, which should be used to protect wildlife and indeed who does not, is not a man-made problem?

Rip 2020 3/3

+ November 20 . - Sydney Olympic Park, AUS : Sea Eaglet SE26 The younger bro (113 days old) of our missing SE25.

Thanks to a beautiful chain of friendship, Pascale has just sent me through Lady Hawk this wonderful drawing of SE26 by Rex with this message.

You might want to share this with Philippe over at HWF for his In memory posts.
It is a charcoal drawing of SE26 done by Rex WF of her after she fledged and returned to the nest.

Mia 2020

MIA end of june (last time seen). - Florida Country : Bald Eagles Victoria and Nicholas, Mom and Dad from Florida Country Eagle nest. They never returned (01-01-2021).

Wherever you are Vic & Nic, i wish you a beautiful and long life. :rh:


Interesting Facts About Victoria & Nicholas
They have nested in the area for at least 18 years. They inhabited their original nest from 2001 – 2017. After Hurricane Irma (summer 2017), they began to build a new nest in a pine tree adjacent to the one downed. Unfortunately, that nest was blown out of the tree on December 21, 2018. Victoria & Nicholas IMMEDIATELY began to rebuild in the exact same spot. In 2019 Dandy and Spurr fledged and in 2020 it was the turn of Hickory and Mossy. https://eaglecountry.net/vic-nic/

https://eaglecountry.net/

From https://www.facebook.com/eaglecountryofficial
June 27th. EC Update: It’s now been a week since we’ve seen Mossy in the surrounding pastures. Just a couple days after our last sighting of Mossy, both Nic and Vic left the area as well. We wish them happy flights! Thanks for following and we look forward to next season as we anticipate their return in the fall.

Here they will not be alone nor forgotten JudyW. I'm sure Einstein has been greeted by everyone you quote before.
For now, it's hard but we have to let it go on its new path, (even if I don't know how to do it myself) our tears, our sadness bring them back to us.
One day you will feel it near you if you haven't already. :grhug:

Estrangement 2020

Oct-2020, Nov-2020 or Dec 2020 ? - Berry College Eagle cam, Ga : Bald eagle Ma Berry, Mom of many eaglets and loving mate of Dad Berry.

Last time seen (3 possible dates)

2020 October 17, this was the last time we saw Mom Berry on the nest with Dad at 05h22pm. Start here, viewtopic.php?p=381502#p381502

or
2020-11-22 at 17h39 during her last flyby above her nest, where Dad Berry and the new female were.

or with a lot of hope (preferred date) :luck:
2020-12-18 flying above Guntersville, Alabama 61 miles west of Rome (Georgia) :rh:

Mom Berry has been present in this area for over 8 and a half years with Dad Berry (from spring 2012 to fall 2020). she laid more than 14 eggs, 13 hatched and 10 took flight. All this with a terrible handicap in her left leg, but she succeeded. This retirement seems well deserved even though it is sad to part with such a wonderful Mom Berry.
With her bad leg, she was not in a strong position to defend her nest and rather than lose her life unnecessarily she certainly preferred to flee.


History of this nest with thanks to Berry Eagles

Berry College’s bald eagle couple first appeared on the main campus in the spring of 2012. The female eagle returned to the nest in 2013 with an injured left leg/foot. We do not know how it happened and it does not hamper her although she will show evidence of her injury for the rest of her life. Since that time, they have continued to nest in the top of a tall pine tree situated between the main entrance and the parking lot of the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center. It is believed that the bald eagles remain in the area during the summer months and do not migrate as there is plentiful food available from lakes, the Berry quarry and the nearby Oostanaula River. They have occasionally been sighted at or near the nest during the summer, probably to ensure that other animals know it is occupied.

EGG STATS: with thanks to Berry Eagles /

In 2013, two eggs hatched (B1 and B2.) B1 fledged on April 22 and B2 fledged on April 28.

In 2014, two eggs were laid, but only one (B3) hatched on Feb. 22. B3 fledged on May 22, 2014.

In 2015, eggs were laid on Jan. 6 and 9 with hatching on Feb. 13 and 15. B4 fledged on May 10, 2014, and B5 fledged on May 12, 2015.

In 2016, eggs were laid Jan. 7 and 10 and hatched Feb. 14 and 15. B6 and B7 fledged May 8 and 9, 2016.

In 2017, eggs were laid Jan. 3 and 7 and hatched Feb. 11 and 13. B8 and B9 fledged on May 5, 2017 and May 10, 2017.

In 2018, eggs were laid Jan. 3 and 6 and hatched Feb. 12 and 13. On Feb. 22, 2018, one of the two eaglets wandered over to the edge of the nest and fell out of the 100-foot-tall pine tree. It did not survive the fall. The remaining eaglet fledged on May 9.

In 2019, eggs were laid Jan. 8 and 11 and hatched Feb. 19 and 21. The eaglets died shortly thereafter. No cause was determined.

It’s so hard to put into words about Mom Berry. I’ve only been watching this nest and Mom and Dad for 4 years. I never knew Mom without her bad leg but over the years, I could see it getting worse. This year when she came back to the nest on more frequent visits, it looked terrible and she seemed in a lot of pain. But what an inspiration she was; always there with Dad trying to help build up the nests each season, incubate her precious eggs and chicks. After loosing her two chicks in 2018 and then the eggs being non-viable last year, she still tried her best to continue. She would try to give Dad help with placing his sticks, even bring in a stick or two herself. But when the new Female came around, I think Mom realized she could not compete with her. Hopefully she has retired to another nest somewhere warm and sunny with lots of coot to keep her crop full. I’ll miss you Mom :brknhrt: .

Hello I posted these pictures to Guntersville Bald Eagle photography page. Several people suggested this may be the eagle that yall have been monitoring. I saw her this morning around 9:40 am Friday 12-18-2020 on Sunset Drive in Guntersville, AL. She came around the Kiwanas pier from north 431 flying southbound down sunset drive toward hwy 69. I dont know where she went from there I lost her in the trees.


NEWS

From FB in B3BB. Kathryn Lynn Holloway Land
My friend was at Weiss lake today and told me he saw a bald eagle with an injured foot flying over the lake 😊💓
It's in AL, maybe 30 miles from Berry College.
He tells me that he was sure it was Ma Berry when he saw it at Lake Weiss because she was literally just above his car as she flew over towards the lake and her injured foot could not be mistaken. He is 100% positive it was her.
